'Blankets are perhaps one of our most evocative  and emotive symbols of nurture. From birth  onwards, we envelop our bodies in these flat panels of woven cloth for comfort and protection.' - Laura Thomas, Curator

 

Touring from Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Wales, Blanket Coverage will showcase the best in contemporary woollen blankets created by makers from across Wales, the UK and internationally. The exhibition will also include three makers from Shetland. The makers push the boundaries of traditional handweaving, designing for a commerce and addressing issues of sustainability in their works. With traditional skills such as weaving in danger of being lost, the makers in the exhibition are ensuring that traditional crafts continue to not only survive but thrive, both celebrating and innovating  the rich tradition of woollen blanket production.

 

Featuring work from - Angie Parker, Beatrice Larkin, Catarina Riccabona, Eleanor Pritchard, Laura Thomas, Llio James, Margo Selby, Maria Sigma, Meghan Spielman, Melvin Tregwynt, Sioni Rhys Handweavers and Wallace Sewell. 

 

We'll also be displaying work from Deborah Briggs, Emma Geddes of Aamos Designs and The Shetland Tweed Company alongside the show.

 

The exhibition will run in accordance with Scottish Government measures at the time.
